Well, in this case, it'd be a compiler.  Instead of C -> x86 opcodes for
an Intel(tm) processor, for example, it'd be C -> Java(tm) bytecode for a JVM.

One of my first questions when I first heard of Java back in the day was:
"So, you could compile C to a JVM?  And you could compile Java to a real CPU?"

I don't think there were tools at the time, but the person from Sun
(or wherever they were from) said something like: "yeah, I guess" :^)
